Spanish Lentil Stew - (Lentejas)


4 servings

  • 3 Cups (250 gr). lentils
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 cloves (optional)
  • Half a small glass of olive oil
  • 1 bayleaf
  • 2 large carrots
  • 3 small potatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 pinch of saffron
  • salt and pepper


- Soak the lentils for half an hour.

- Peel and wash the carrots and potatoes. Slice the carrots and halve the potatoes (unless they are very small).

- Drain the lentils and put them in a saucepan. Add enough water to cover them and add the carrots, potatoes, bayleaf, pepper, a little salt and saffron. Also add the cloves if you want the lentils to have a slightly spicey air to them. Put the pan over a low heat and cover.

- Slice the onion and garlic and fry, stirring all the time. After a minute or so add to the other ingredients in the saucepan.

- Let the lentil stew simmer for at least 40 minutes. Boil off any excess liquid at the end.
